Feb 22 2014 (12:50)   Sans rail link and CIL has blocks lying idle

State miner CIL has three to 4 fully developed large size coal blocks ready for production lying idle for lack of railway linkages for coal evacuation.
The news, given by a representative of the thermal power sector hit by fuel shortages, comes in the backdrop of coal block de-allocations being undertaken by the coal ministry.
Mr Lajpat Srivastav, CEO of Hindustan Powerprojects, said at the ET Power Focus Summit that "Recently, the Coal India chairman told me that they have 3-4 large size coal blocks that have been fully developed and are ready
to produce but they have no linkage with the railways for evacuation of coal."
Warning that the country was looking at coal shortage to the tune of 160 to 170 million tonne beyond 2015 to 2016, Mr Srivastav said that "A high-powered committee was supposed to be looking into the coal evacuation issue."
A high level inter ministerial committee was constituted during the second quarter by the Prime Minister's Office to consider faster implementation of critical railway projects in potential coalfields.
The coal ministry said at the time that 3 critical rail links were being fast tracked to ensure transportation of coal from CIL mines in Odisha, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh. The projects are likely to be completed by the end of 2017.
Mr S Narsing Rao chairman of Coal India has said that the three coalfields require only about 300 kilometer of rail connectivity to provide at least 300 million tonne of additional coal production per year.

CIL should be transferred to Ranchi Division immediately for better management of this stretch. Furthermore this area is in Jharkhand whereas the line is being managed by ECR, HQ of which is far far away.

No such rule compels the TTE to wait till next Junction/stoppage...The TTE has full rights to transfer any vacant bearth to RAC pax...though if the next station is very close..say like NDLS and NZM..he may wait....
